CLeaR is committed to providing tailored academic support and development activities according to the needs of Māori and Pasifika staff at the University of Auckland.

Equally we are committed to supporting all academic staff, departments, and faculties in developing, implementing and evaluating strategies for Māori and Pacific student engagement in ways that can maximise potential to succeed. These strategies may include:

  • Learning the basics of Māori and Pacific languages and cultures.
  • Culturally inclusive pedagogies.
  • Tutor training.
  • Supporting the professional development of Māori and Pacific staff.
  • Individual consultations and teaching observations.
  • Introduction to the wider suite of CLeaR workshops and initiatives.
  • Making curriculum relevant to Māori and Pacific students.
  • Supervision of Māori and Pacific students.

Please note: CLeaR is soon to be disestablished and some of our offerings will be distributed to other areas of the University. We are no longer taking formal consultations, however, you are welcome to enquire with us in February/March 2020 for an update.
